Hi, Lisa. 

You'd be surprised how efficient spammers.  I actually received two phishing emails a week after paying Amazon Prime that the payment was declined.  The Amazon logo was there and the sender showed as Customer Service and the email address actually included no-replyamazon with a lot of gobbledegook following with @ something.space, definitely not amazon.com. 

I suggest you change your TurboTax password before doing anything else.

Let's start with a Malwarebytes scan. 

Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Right-click on the Malwarebytes icon and select Run as Administrator. Follow the on-screen prompts to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
  • Once the installation has finished, launch Malwarebytes.
  • Click on Scan Now and wait for the scan to complete.
  • Malwarebytes will update its databases, then start scanning.
  • If no threats are found, close the Malwarebytes window. If threats are detected, make sure they are all selected and click Quarantine selected.
  • Click on Reports in the left pane, and check the box next to the latest report (at the top). Click on View Report.
  • Select Export in the bottom left corner, and click Text File. Save the file to your desktop, with a name like MBAMLog.txt.
  • Open the Malwarebytes log on your desktop, and copy and paste its contents into your next reply.

No announcement but a small update to Build 81.0.416.11 has been released.

It doesn't have anything to do with different operating systems.  Rather, current versions of Firefox use WebExtensions and Pale Moon did not go that route.  Using Pale Moon means that I can continue using legacy extensions that are no longer supported by Firefox but are long-time favorites and make posts on forums so much easier.  With Colt, for example, I can select text and right-click and use the option to copy text and location as BBCode, saving having to manually format.

Mozilla sent Firefox Version 73.0.1 to the release channel today with a number of fixes.  Firefox ESR Version remains at Version 68.5.

Release Notes

Pale Moon has been updated to version 28.8.3 as a bugfix and security update.

The update includes two DiD ("Defense-in-Depth") updates. A DiD update is s a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

Yes, I'm still here as are so many of our other FL friends.  It is good to see you.  Stop in any time.

techie, Firefox didn't use the uBlock Origin Updater.  Rather, it had been needed only for Firefox legacy-based browsers.

uBlockO  v1.16.4.18 Released (February 17, 2020)

Yes, it was automatically updated without the Updater.

Yes.  Besides, you could always uninstall that update if you needed to reset your PC and the update prevented the reset.

KB4524244 has been pulled from Windows Update due to issues with the “Reset this PC”.  In the event this affects your ability to use the Reset feature, see Windows 10, version 1909 and Windows Server, version 1909 - Windows Release Information | Microsoft Docs.

With automatic updates on, my guess is that the classic version of uBlock Origin will update when the version has been compatibility-checked. 

12
The warning was for legacy versions of uBlock Origin; that is, those of us using it on Pale Moon rather that current versions of Firefox that uses WebExtensions.  Checking Tools>Add-ons, uBlock Origin was last updated February 10 to version 1.16.4.17.  On Edge Dev, extensions shows version 1.23.0.

I'm pleased to announce that starting from version 1.16.4.17, uBlock Origin for Firefox legacy-based browsers can auto-update itself without any additional tricks. This also means that uBlock Origin Updater is becoming obsolete, and I'm going to make it so that it uninstalls itself on the next update.

I checked Add-ons and, sure enough, uBlock Origin Updater is no longer installed.

PC 4GB RAM. 
Speed Test:  PING ms 25, DOWNLOAD Mbps 105.68, and  UPLOAD Mbps 11.66. 
I disabled all extensions on both Edge Dev and Pale Moon with no other tabs open and ran separately:

Edge Dev:  29.7
Pale Moon: 9.64

Strange.  I don't find that pages load slowly.
